It shall provide a wide array of opportunities for self-reflection that would prepare one to become a practice teacher.
This course is a continuation of Field Study 1. It is school-based and allows a pre-service student to participate and assist in limited actual teaching-learning activities that relate to assessment in learning, preparation of bulletin boards, and other routines in the classroom. A portfolio that will contain sample lessons or learning plans and demonstration teaching of at least one subject content area will be required. Action research shall be encouraged to start in this course and conclude during the internship.

This is a course in implementation of multi-grade classes that deals with the theories, principles and concepts of multi-grade learners and classes. It includes pedagogical approaches and contextualized learning environments for the different grade and age levels which are grouped for instructions in different school situations.
The course focuses on child
and adolescent development with an emphasis on current research and theory on
biological, linguistic, cognitive, social, and emotional dimensions of
development. Further, this includes factors that affect the progress of
development of the learners and shall include appropriate pedagogical
principles applicable to each developmental level.
The course equips the preservice mathematics teachers with knowledge and skills about lines and conic sections, limit and continuity of functions, differentiating and integrating algebraic, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions in one variable needed in higher calculus. The course emphasizes the enhancements of critical thinking and problem-solving skills related to analytic geometry and calculus. Likewise, the preservice mathematics teachers of this course are expected to employ computer applications/software and other technological devices as tools in learning and problem solving.

The course EDUC 108-Teaching Mathematics in the Primary Grades is a course that aims to equip elementary pre-service teachers with the content and pedagogical knowledge needed to teach mathematics from Grades 1 to 3. Topics that are presented in this module are based on the most essential learning competencies issued by the Department of Education.
In the original syllabus, the course is delivered through activities that foster the development and mastery of the different concepts and skills included in the five content areas and how to teach these concepts. Thus, pre-service teachers who take this course are expected to acquire proficiency in the content areas of the K-12 mathematics curriculum of the Department of Education, namely, Numbers and Number Sense, Measurement, Geometry, Patterns and Algebra, and Probability and Statistics first before demonstrating how these topics will be taught to elementary pupils.
In the absence of face to face classes due to the current health crisis, distance or remote learning modes are put in place. In these delivery modes, observation of actual demonstration teaching is a challenge, hence, this part will be addressed in another course EDUC 113-Teaching Mathematics in the Intermediate Grades. All the most essential learning competencies found in the five content areas from Grades 1 to 6 will be addresses in this course.
The modules in this course are designed in such a way that students will learn the lessons even without the supervision of a teacher. Each module comes with an introduction, objectives, lecture notes, solved examples and exercises. The assessment part is chapter test that covers all lessons discussed in each module.
Inorganic chemistry is an introductory course designed to introduce student to the basic laws, theories and principles of inorganic chemistry. This course familiarizes the student with basic principles, laws, and theories of bonding and molecular structure, intermolecular forces and properties and states of matter, major behavior of gases, liquids, solids, solutions and to introduce to the basics of reduction-oxidation reaction and radiochemistry.The chemistry of main group of elements and transition metals will be discussed in context with a short section covering descriptive chemistry.
